During economic war, reducing livelihood problems, providing basic goods a priority for gov’t: President Rouhani

Tehran (ISNA) - At Sunday's meeting of the Cabinet’s Economic Coordination Board, a report by the Ministries of Agriculture Jihad and Industry, Mine and Trade on how to supply and distribute basic goods next year was presented.

After presenting these reports, the proposed mechanism of the government regarding the supply and distribution of basic goods, considering the estimates for foreign exchange earnings and economic conditions of the country next year, with emphasis on fighting rent-seeking and corruption in the process of supply to consumption of goods was explained and evaluated.

"During the economic war, the government has made every effort to reduce people's livelihood problems despite the pressure of sanctions, and the government's priority has been to provide basic goods to increase public welfare and support the underprivileged," Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani said.

He added that controlling the fluctuations of the domestic market and preventing the increase of relative prices of basic goods, inflation rate in the country and also creating relative prosperity in society are the most important goals of the government and emphasised, "The macro policy of supply and distribution of basic goods must not lay the ground for rent-seeking and corruption”.

Dr. Rouhani added, "While efforts should be made to optimise the country's macro policy for currency and trade, at the same time, the Ministries of Industry, Agriculture Jihad and other relevant agencies have been tasked with a detailed plan and to coordinate with each other to control and manage the prices of goods accurately”.

The President continued, "In the mechanism proposed by the government next year, the supply of basic goods with the focus on increasing public welfare is the main axis and should be implemented by allocating the necessary foreign exchange resources in a systematic process of supply, production and distribution in the country".

Dr. Rouhani emphasised, "In this proposed mechanism, the fight against rent-seeking and corruption and creating transparency in the process of supply to consumption of goods, has been considered, and at the same time the continuation of self-reliance policies in the production of basic goods will continue to be the government's definite goal”.

The President further stressed, "The government is determined to complete the comprehensive trade system to ensure transparency throughout the supply and distribution route and eliminate areas of rent-seeking and corruption”.
